What influence do we have in changing someone else’s karma? Are we able to take responsibility for that and should we be responsible for contributing negatively to someone else’s choices?
Can I alter someone else’s karma by intervening in their lives? No, I can’t. It always comes down to ‘freedom of choice’ for everyone. Other people can and have influenced my decisions in the past yet I must take responsibility for all my choices, past and future.
Can I improve someone else’s destiny by attempting to steer their lives with values and beliefs which they don’t share? Perhaps.
Can I change someone else’s choices by showing them a different and perhaps better choice?
Perhaps, but not with any certainty.
The reality is that we can’t and shouldn’t attempt to interfere with someone else’s karma and destiny.
We can only be role models demonstrating the impermanence of everything, of the interconnectedness of all living things, and of the Truth that all things hat have existence are alive, from the most inanimate appearing rock whose electrons are vibrating so closely that we cannot come between them without using great explosive force. Just because we don’t or can’t understand the nature of its consciousness doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist.
Light is alive. Fire is alive. The aurora borealis is alive. The planet Earth is alive and has consciousness.
I won’t get into discussing whether a grain of sand has awareness or whether a molecule of water is conscious of the water droplet next to it.
That’s like attempting to discuss how many angels can dance on the head of a pin.
It is easy to believe that by all atoms and molecules being inter-connected by gravity, and electro-magnetic forces that we are all, at some level, sensitive to the existence of each atom and wave, and particle next to us.
We interact with waves, particles, and atoms next to us with every movement from every thought.
We believe the ‘thought’ to be originating from ‘consciousness’ or ’emptiness’ and manifesting into existence through speech or action.
This is an attempt to explain that non-material consciousness is at the origin of the material manifest world which we can sense physically.
